We bought our house in the Charente about 6 months ago for our use as a holiday home. The first thing we have done is get a pool installed, which is nearly there except for one problem.
Our electrician has told us that we need to have our ERDF power supply boosted as it is only a 30 amp supply which is insufficient for the filter and heater, without constantly tripping the whole system.
On top of the ERDF costs we also have to have a trench dug because of the siting of the new input on which ERDF insist, which is pushing the costs above 3000 euros, so would rather consider a solar system. Would a solar system be sufficient for the pump and heater? Has anyone gone down this route and can they recommend a company who will quote for this work which we need doing urgently as the water's going in the pool at the beginning of May 2016?
We've got a great south facing pitched garage roof which would be ideal for some nice PV panels, but not looking to feed back into the grid.
Hope someone out there can help us.
